Dessert Goals tickets on sale: Here's what you'll be able to eat

They sold like hot cakes — or whatever the trendy Instagram-worthy dessert version of hot cakes are, anyway.

General admission tickets for Dessert Goals, the all-sweets food festival that took the city by storm last year, have sold out -- but some more expensive tickets that provide access to special workshops are still available). The festival will be held March 25 and 26, and promises a selection of cookies, cakes, ice cream and more from 20 vendors like Baonanas, Ring Ding Bar, Coolhaus and more.

But heaven forbid you clog up your arteries with all these pretty desserts without also clogging up your friends’ social media feeds with jealousy-inducing photographs. To make sure you can post the best pics possible, Dessert Goals will also feature “The Sucré Garden,” specially optimized to produce the best Instagram photos, sponsored by Viva La Juicy Sucré and Bustle.

If you want to really impress your followers, some of those $50 workshop ticket are for panels that focus on food photography or building your social following. While the festival promises a “free candy shop” and unlimited Intelligentsia coffee, all those pretty desserts from the 20 vendors are not included in the price of admission. The average price point is $5.

If you missed your chance to buy tickets, you can still take a look at some of the treats that will be available below.
